Solid Waste


The Solid Waste Management Division is responsible for the collection and disposal of industrial, commercial and residential solid waste. In addition, administering the City’s Source Reduction and Recycling (SRRE) Program, and providing technical assistance and outreach to increase awareness of waste reduction and recycling.

In 1989, Assembly Bill 939, Integrated Waste Management Act, was passed to establish a new direction for waste management and the decrease in landfill capacity. Following AB 939, came the creation of the CA Integrated Waste Management Board (CIWMB).

The City of Lathrop is mandated to meet solid waste diversion goals of 50%, attend monthly planning committees hosted by SJ County Public Works Division, purchasing of recycled products and waste minimization.
